Yes, it was vague.  Sorry.

I meant to say that when the machine is booted, one of the last
messages which is displayed on the screen is that xserver has been
started.  I am then at the command line.  I'd like to be able to
start Gnome, but don't know how to get there.  Do I need to change
run-levels?  Or ... ?
